Frank, thank you (as well as Uwe, Patrick and everybody else in this 
mailing list) for taking the time to help me with my problem.

Although I thoroughlly applied every advice offered, I was not able to 
complete the installation in RH8 (the symptom remains the same...).

So, I followed another path: I created a separate Red Hat, Ver.7.1, 
partition on my hard disk drive (with only the necessary software 
installed - this is where I am sending this message from right now), 
into which the mySAP WAS TestDrive installed flawlessly.

For the time being, I'm O.K. with this setup and I can proceed to my 
regular SAP-related work. Later on, I will repeat my effort to install 
on RH8 and I will then let you know how I do.

Regards & Thanks to everybody,
